You asked me to wait for you,
Just something that you had to do,
To take a break and find your way;
A new place, on your own.

You wouldn't say how long,
Insisted nothing's wrong.
But all my doubts come flooding out
To drown me once again.

So long, so far away. (Don't let it be forever.)
Somehow, I hope someday. (Maybe you'll be right there.)

So now I sit and stare,
When nothing's even there.
Is this heart of mine
Just wasting time
On something it can't change?

So long, so far away. (Don't let it be forever.)
Somehow, I hope someday. (Maybe you'll be right there.)

It may be forever,
But that seems so long.
Maybe tomorrow you'll be right there,
And none of this will matter.

But I can't chase dreams
When nothing's as it seems.
But to live somehow,
In the here and now,
Is more than I can take.

So long, so far away. (Don't let it be forever.)
Somehow, I hope someday. (Maybe you'll be right there.)
